The PNA believe that life-long learning and continuing professional development (CPD) is a valued component of nurses' professional practice and supports the effectiveness of the nursing contribution through the development and promotion of knowledge. We strongly believe that knowledgeable nurses strengthen the quality of safe clinical practice and directly enhance service user experience and transform evidence into action. The PNA, uniquely positioned as both a professional body and trade union, aims to safeguard and enrich member's experience.

In enhancing our benefits to you, our members, we have completed a Needs Analysis of your CPD needs and sincere thanks to all of you- across the country- who participated in both the survey and the focus groups.

This short programme will provide registered psychiatric nurses with evidenced based knowledge to critically develop nurses' theoretical and practical understanding of the core pillars of comprehensive mental health assessment. The candidate will be introduced to the concept of the futility of mental health assessment and how the onus of data interpretation involves advanced skills of self-awareness and contemplation. The impact of mental health assessment on treatment modalities will be discussed, in particular the interpersonal and intrapersonal psychodynamic that can occur and impact on the outcome of the assessment. Given the fast-changing pace of mental health presentation, the candidate will be introduced to the contemporary presentations of transgender assessment and internet/ gaming/ pornography addiction.
